With our shortlisted 10 favourite pineapple tarts brands, we roped in a total of 20 family and friends to help with our tasting session and grade according to the following criteria – (i) fragrance, (ii) buttery, (iii) sweetness, (iv) texture, (v) appearance and (vi) packaging. Grades range from 1 to 5, with 1 being poor to 5 being excellent. The total score is upon 30 marks. As seen from the table above, our scores were collated and averaged out. Here’s our top 5 favourites!

1. Kele Confectionery
Pineapple tarts from Kele give customers the right amount of sweetness. Its pastry is not too flaky nor too dry, it simply melts in your mouth! Warning – this is extremely addictive! Haha! On top of its wonderful taste, the packaging is very presentable and this can easily be a good gift for anyone or everyone!

2. Le Café Confectionery & Pastry
Customers love this for their huge, unique “golf ball” size! It is filling enough and provides ample satisfaction. You know you need to run around visiting relatives and friends over the Lunar New Year to the extent you might not get to sit down for a proper meal due to too many visitings. Hence, this is the perfect snack to fill your tummy temporarily! Yums indeed!

3. Joyus Pastries
We love that the pineapple fillings here are homemade, with no added preservatives nor colouring. Their packaging may look simple now but we feel that if they improve on their packaging, perhaps, more people might purchase and give this as presents to overseas friends, letting them know how good our Lunar New Year delicacies are.

4. Bakerzin
Bakerzin’s creative “yuan bao” shaped pineapple tarts will make your in-laws happy. We like the mild sweetness of their pineapple filling. Their crust isn’t too flaky nor too hard. The size is perfect for a few bites. Bakerzin puts effort into their presentation and we believe people would like to get this as corporate gifts or just gifts for their family and friends.

5. Amethyst
Amethyst’s pineapple balls are miniature in size but still gives a burst of flavours. We feel if the size is slightly bigger, these pineapple balls will become hotsellers. We like its oriental packaging too!

Hope we have provided enough information as a guideline to help you decide on which sinfully delicious pineapple tarts are worth your calories. Do remember to order earlier to avoid disappointments! Here wishing you a prosperous and abundant Lunar New Year! Have fun and indulge more.

Le Café Confectionery & Pastry Pineapple Tarts

Le Café Confectionery & Pastry

Address: 264 Middle Road, David Elias Building, Singapore 188990
Opening hours: 10.30am – 7pm (Mon-Sat). 10.30am – 4pm (Sun & PH).
Website: http://www.lecafe.com.sg/

Le Café is one of Singapore’s oldest and finest cake and pastry shops since its establishment in 1949. Hence, it’s no surprise that they are well recognized for their quality and unique taste of their products. Their selections are 100% crafted by hand and contain no pork or lard. Le Café is also the first to introduce round pineapple tarts aka “Gold Ball” tarts! The moist pineapple filling is encased in their buttery, crumbly pastry. Mmm … A bite guarantees 100% gratification! These “Golf Balls” are available only in 20 pieces bottle, 10 pieces bottle ($11.30) and 10 pieces box. Remember to consume within six weeks from the day of purchase and note that these “Golf Balls” do not require refrigeration. If you’re planning on bringing these overseas for friends, hand carry this item due to its fragility.

Pineapple Tarts Singapore

Looking at their name would not require a genius to guess their specialty! Pineapple tarts Singapore is an online store selling CNY goodies. The pineapple tarts from Pineapple Tarts Singapore are highly addictive. The exterior is sturdy and not flaky, the texture feels perfect, and the pastry is not too dry. The pineapple filling is well complemented by the buttery texture. The whole pineapple tart is also of the right amount of sweetness. We personally do not like pastry that is too sweet so this is definitely perfect.

We first got to know about them last year in 2017. We visited their sampling location to try it out before making a purchase. The shop front is very industrial but it is very clean. Apart from the perfect taste, another point we love about them is the convenience. They provide free delivery for orders above S$70.00. This year, all we needed to do was to place an order online at www.pineappletarts.sg. Yes, we did spend more than S$70.00, but the best part for us is not the free delivery – the best part is that we have already received our order!

Price and Packaging: S$21.90 for a container of 20 pieces

Location: 14 New Industrial Road, #05-03, Singapore 536203

Operating Hours: Daily, 24 hours (online store)

True Blue Cuisine

True Blue Cuisine boasts a different type of Nonya style pineapple tarts from your usual mass market options at your neighbourhood supermarket. Their delicious handmade bite sized pastries seem to possess many different spices, carefully mixed together.

We took an Uber to visit them over the weekend. Do note that they are closed during lunch though. We waited for them to open through our own negligence but the store keeper was too kind to be so generous with the many samples.

Price and Packaging: S$38.00 for a container of 12 pieces

Location: 9 Armenian St, Singapore 179937

Operating Hours: Daily, 11:30AM–2:30PM, 5:30–9:30PM

The Connoisseur Concerto

We chanced upon a TCC located at Clarke Quay only to be shocked that they sell pineapple tarts! We have to say that the packaging is really cute and presentable. It makes a perfect gift for any relative or friend, especially if they have children. We were triggered to purchase a box of it because of how unique they looked. The taste leans more to the sweet side and the team members of Masons Home Décor who had a sweet tooth definitely gave it a thumbs up!

These are supposed to be bear shaped pineapple tarts. We felt however, that they could pass off as dogs too, making them extremely appropriate for CNY 2018!

Price and Packaging: S$23.80 per box

cedele pineapple tart
 

Cedele

Cedele has always been known to offer Singaporeans with quality food crafted with our good health in mind. Pineapple tarts may be attempted by some due to health reasons. It is amazing to know that we have establishments like Cedele! With only organic unrefined sugar and good quality butter used, the pineapple tarts from Cedele are not too sweet and still rich in taste.

Price and Packaging: S$22.80 per box

Location, Operating Hours, and Contact: Various locations. Check out their website www.cedelemarket.com.sg for more information

 

Kele

Kele has built a legacy for themselves with regard to Chinese New Year goodies. Their CNY goodies are packaged well, making them perfect for gifts to anyone. We received some from our partners in the form of hampers last year in 2017. We have to say that the grade of these pineapple tarts are definitely above average. Beautiful packaging, sturdy pastry, and being not to sweet makes their pineapple tarts worthy for any taste bud!

Pineapple tarts from Kele give customers the right amount of sweetness. Its pastry is not too flaky nor too dry, it simply melts in your mouth! Warning – this is extremely addictive! Haha! On top of its wonderful taste, the packaging is very presentable and this can easily be a good gift for anyone or everyone!

Price and Packaging: S$21.40 per box

Address: 15 Jalan Tepong, Jurong Food Hub, #06-16, Singapore 619336

I follow this recipe: http://nasilemaklover.blogspot.sg/2013/02/my-best-melt-in-mouth-pineapple-tarts.html?m=1

Butter used: President unsalted. Add abt one tsp of salt 

Pineapple filling: 1kg from Ailin Bakery (less sweet compared to those in NTUC/Phoon Huat) (https://www.facebook.com/AilinBakeryHouse/)

 

This recipe has never failed me. Everyone says it's good. :)

Personally preferred those 'opened' pineapple fillings on TOP of tart shells over those completely encased in pastries. There is a certain famous one that is sellout for their Golf ball size pineapple 'bomb' around this period. Many people like but I kind of find them too much for my fancy. Yet I can really go for the Malaysia version of open pineapple tart that is the size of half a palm. Sorry no Picts to show but those are twice the size of our regular tarts and they are also slightly more brown. Yum. :P

I got mine from the same family I have been ordering from for the past 10 years or more.  She (65yo housewife) charges $38 for a bottle of about 25 pcs.  But the taste is heavenly even better than True Blue or the famous golf ball pineapple tarts from LE Cafe.

 

She also makes kuih bangket, kuih belanda and traditional 'kok chai' filled with sugary moist ground peanuts - not like the dried up peanuts you get from the commercially available ones from NTUC or Sheng Siong.

 

Unfortunately she only bakes for old clients like me.  She says old liao, no more energy to take new orders.

Same same!!! For folks who ate them and if they still complain the Ailin Bakery's filling was sweet i'd add in lemon juice to the pineapple filling to make it more tart....its heavenly...
